There’s a method of reasoning to our madness this week, as Branden & Jelena take you through a step-by-step prescription for improving your performance on Methods of Reasoning and Argument Structure questions.

These may not be the flashiest questions on the LSAT, but they’re a consistent source of points if you approach them with the right strategy.

Listen and learn . . .

  1. How to identify the most common argumentative techniques on the LSAT
  2. Why arguments don’t have to be flawless—or even good—to appear in the stimulus for these LR question types
  3. The difference between premises and background information
  4. How to tell a main conclusion from a subsidiary
  5. When it’s okay to appeal to authority (even though “appeal to authority” is also a fallacy)
  6. How to handle two-perspective questions
  7. Why the main conclusion is often “the other guy is wrong!”
